I live in sunscreen every time I head to the mountains, I use 50 and above, right now I have 70. I put it on in layers, and I wash it off in layers...without it I would have to bring more water and if I burn I wouldn't be ready for the next day...I use a full brimmed hat, I wear long sleeve shells on hot days not just windy ones...I walk fast in the sun, I slow and rest in the shade...In the mountains, when you are closer to the sun, sunscreen means the difference between success or failure...beware the cold or cloudy day, drink more water, put on more sunscreen, in the snow protect your eyes and cover as much as you can, sunscreen sometimes won't help in the snow, even spf 70....I have been burned in my eyes, under my arms and on the backs of my knees, it sucks...I have seen a small area where sunscreen or a scratch from rock climbing has burned the inside of the skin, or through a scab and blood, protect open wounds even more, a sun burned raspberry is worse than just a raspberry...buy lip balm with sunscreen in it (maybe even some aloe) and pay attention to the sun blocking qualities of clothing, lots of clothes are now spf rated...do not "get a base layer" or a protective tan...it may help you not burn for a while but you are exposing yourself to even more sun than you need which leads to skin cancer and death, or you just get prematurely wrinkly and old...just use sunscreen and believe me...I use to never wear it and learned this all the hard way...

Tilly makes clothes that are certified SPF50 BUT you pay for them ($250 for pants, 200$ for a shirt...).

sunshine is healthy, especially in Oregon winters, just not long exposure to it. I rarely use spf because of the chemicals, hats are best.

I love mine. 50 SPF, guaranteed for life. My Tilly airflow has been in more countries then most people will ever see.

Their clothes are the same as well. All guaranteed, SPF built in but very expensive. I bought my hat for $65 about 20 years ago and it's still kicking.

Totally washable, floats, 50 SPF, Guaranteed for life...

Yup. Hell, there's even a documented case where an elephant ate one and it survived that (Personally, if an Elephant ever ate mine I'd replace it instead of washing it and wearing it again...
